2015 Chevrolet Suburban Review, Price, Specs and Concept – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Chevrolet Suburban. 2015 Chevrolet Suburban concept is one brand new car from Chevrolet that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Suburban.
Chevrolet’s Suburban turns 80 next year, and to celebrate and because the outgoing model is getting old the bow-tie brand is marching out the twelfth generation of the breed for 2015. The Suburban started out way back in 1935 as a sort of bare-bones pickup truck/station-wagon hybrid, but effectively laid down the formula for what we today consider an SUV. Per the original Suburban’s blueprint, the new one rides on essentially the same platform as GM’s full-size trucks, the Silverado and Sierra. It likewise inherits a lot of the same improvements that hit those pickups when they were redesigned last year, including an all-new small-block V-8 engine, a stiffer ladder frame chassis, and a bunch of carlike safety and convenience technologies.
The Chevy Suburban is the original SUV, as well as the oldest nameplate on the market today it has been around in one form or another since 1935. And while the 2015 Chevy Suburban shares more than just its name with the original, it pushes into brand-new territory as well.
For this year’s new 2015 Suburban, Chevy has turned to some traditional touches big shoulders, big V-8 engines, big towing capacity and some crossover cues like fold-flat rear seats, to bring the Suburban into the same modern family as the recently revamped Chevy Silverado 1500 pickup truck.

The Suburban buffs up its safety credentials with GM’s new front-center airbags, on models with front bucket seats. Adaptive cruise control is an option, as are a lane-departure warning system with seat-mounted haptic alerts, blind-spot monitors, forward collision alerts, and front parking sensors. A head-up display relays key information into the driver’s line of sight, making a welcome addition to the Suburban’s feature set. The seat-mounted haptic driver alert system, first deployed in the Cadillac brand, is intuitive and attention-getting; it’s a definite boon to safety and driver awareness. One side note, however, regarding traditional occupant safety: The federal government this year separately tested a Suburban, and it didn’t do quite as well as the Tahoe in frontal protection, or in the side pole test; both models add up to a four-star (out of five-star) Overall Rating, though.
Other available features include keyless entry; pushbutton start; an 8.0-inch LCD touchscreen radio with Chevy MyLink connectivity; a head-up display; a power tailgate; a cargo-management system; and up to six USB ports and six power outlets. A Blu-Ray DVD entertainment system will also be an option on the Suburban, as will wheels sized up to 22 inches.
The steering is now electrically assisted, and top-spec LTZ models now offer GM’s Magnetic Ride Control adaptive dampers. Chevy also widened the rear track, tweaked the brake feel for more feedback, and upped the standard wheel size to 18-inchers. This results in a claimed improvement in handling and braking; if the chassis setup is at all similar to that of the sweet-driving Silverado, the 2015 Suburban’s close sibling, we’d be hard-pressed to disagree with Chevy’s hyperbole.
Chevy says the new Suburban doesn’t share any sheetmetal panels with the Silverado, but like its close kin the 2015 Chevy Tahoe SUV and the 2015 GMC Yukon the Silverado’s roots are common to the big new SUV, from its frame construction to its V-8 powertrain.
While GMC puts all its full-size SUVs under one umbrella, the Suburban leaves the short-wheelbase duties to the Chevy Tahoe. The long-wheelbase model in Chevy’s portfolio is 130 inches long in wheelbase as it was in the previous generation and more than 220 inches long overall, slightly stretched from the last Suburban.
There’s just one powertrain on tap for the 2015 model year–no six-cylinder, no hybrid drivetrains, not even the new 6.2-liter V-8 found in the companion 2015 GMC Yukon Denali. The Suburban gets the same 5.3-liter V-8 found in the Silverado; its output of 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque is channeled through a six-speed automatic, to either the rear wheels or all four wheels. The new engine is rated for more power output than the previous version, and it feels strong in the new Suburban, offering plenty of acceleration for freeway mergers, long mountain climbs, and passing maneuvers.
EPA gas mileage estimates show a small improvement over last year’s Suburban, with the 2015 2WD model earning 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for a combined rating of 18 mpg; the 4WD Suburban scores 15/22/18 mpg. Chevy says the Suburban should be the most efficient vehicle in its class, thanks to standard cylinder deactivation and direct injection. In our time behind the wheel, we found the Suburban to report considerably better gas mileage than its predecessor, operating the majority of the time in “V4″ mode, with half of the cylinders deactivated, in normal driving. The transition from V8 to V4 modes is seamless, completely transparent to the driver, with no vibration or other indication of the crossover point.
